Field Narrowed For New Santa Barbara Fire Chief Post

Posted on Saturday, December 15, 2012 10:58am

The City of Santa Barbara narrowed its search for a new fire chief to six finalists.

Two panels interviewed candidates seeking to replace Chief Andy DiMizio, who officially retired on Friday after nearly four decades of service.

Pat McElroy is serving as interim chief, and is one of the finalists.

Santa Barbara City Administrator Jim Armstrong will ultimately decide who will be the new chief, with a decision expected early next year.
